Great assortment of food!

We decided to try this buffet because of a reward through VegasSlots. I noticed right away that the restaurant has been remodeled since we were there last in 2014. You are now able to refill your drinks by yourself and the flow of the buffet line is easier to navigate. They had salads, a carving... read more

As you'd expect, tons and tons of food and choice. It just wasn't that good: I'm all in favor of buffets but when the food is just "meh" it becomes a case of eating it cos it's "free". Hardly a great recommendation for a restaurant. I may have tried this on a bad day. But I came away thinking I... More

The staff was friendly and the waiter checked on us many times! The food was great and they had a lot of variety. The desserts were very good as well. Would recommend to everyone.

Went here for the lunch buffet. Although we arrived around noon, the food was overcooked and stale. This buffet does not have standard buffet fare, for example, oxtail in gravy was one of the dishes and it didn't look fresh. We did enjoy the salad and fresh fruit but for $21.99, we expected a little more. Service was excellent. Not... More

we thought it was pretty pricey for what you got, food quality was fine, coffee was not so fine. It is so big you just feel like sheep here, we didn't feel comfortable here.

Our waiter never refilled our drinks. returned to chairs missing and sticky stuff on the other. The quality of the food was poor. The fruit was no longer good. The cookies were alright but hard.

The Bayside offers a large variety of oriental, american and international food. The quantity is above the quality... But for the price that is charged is more than fair.

You just can't beat a buffet that offers crab legs and prime rib (unless you can find one that offers lobster). This was a great buffet and we enjoyed it very much. Price was very good at about $25 ea.
